About the Owner

I inherited this property when I was 11 (my father passed away). I spent there all my holidays since I was a kid... Now I'm a world wide traveller, though, I always return to this beautiful place to relax and take advantage of its incredible energy.

Amazing Location, Spacious Villa, Lovely grounds,

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed here in August (4 adults and 4 young children) we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa Baroni. When we say amazing location this is because it is literally facing Mt Etna surrounded by stunning views. If you want a central location with lots around you then this is not suitable but if you want to stay somewhere quiet in a beautiful setting then it doesn't get any better than this!! There are 3 or 4 local towns which we visited all within 15./20 minute drive and these were all lovely. The supermarket is around 20 minutes away. You must hire a car if you are staying here.

What really made our stay amazing was the Villa managers Luciano and Antoinella, they were fantastic! They dealt with any questions we had, they drove us around in the evenings and sometimes during the day, they bought us items that we asked for, they were absolutely amazing and made the trip very special for us. They are on call 24 hours a day. I would say if no one in your party speaks Italian fluently then make sure you bring a translating Italian book or something as everyone's English is very very limited. Luckily for us one of our party was Italian so she did all the talking. The villa managers organised babysitting for us on 4 evenings, the babysitter actually did speak English and was lovely. We had the Private Chef one night and all we could say was WOW, one the tastiest meals we have ever had, so much so we booked the chef again for our last night. We were very happy to experience Villa Baroni.

Definitely wort it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Big rooms, Big pool, King size beds (not easy to find around vacation rentals), Wonderful Villa and above average service (the caretakers speak basic English but are always ready to help). Very well situated to visit Eastern Sicily! We love Tennis and were able to play almost every day. We definitely recommend it.

Top of the Line: Expensive but worth it!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury, beautiful, unbelievable location (in the middle of the countryside with a unique view on Mount Etna, though well connected), great service and help by the caretakers.

It was easy to organize excursions through the caretaker at reasonable prices.

Even if the price of the Rent, was higher than many other vacation rentals, it was totally worth it.

If you want a unique experience, it is the place to go.

Amasing stay, very nice and relaxing location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was amasing. The surroundings of the house are very nice and quiet and the accomodation is excellent for family/friends vacations (lot of space, closed garden). Very good location to relax and rest (rather than for intensiv tourism).

Two points to improve: lower options price (e.g. 170 euros for personal cooker excluding groceries and wines is too expensive) and put a door on the swimming pool access (broken just before our stay though).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. 1/ It was unfortunate that the swimming pool gate broke just before your arrival and that it was in the middle of August: in Sicily impossible to find someone to repair it during your stay. We are really sorry for the hassle. Now it is repaired and functional! 2/ Following your remark we are going to revise all the prices for our services for 2016 and especially the ones for the private cook. We plan on proposing a full week including private cook for an unbeatable price. Hope to have you again as our preferred guests!

Incredible, secluded, chilled week at the Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Baroni is better than the photos make it out to be. The Villa was perfectly presented and each of the double bedrooms (with ensuites) were fantastic. We also had use of the additional rooms next to the villa which were fabulous as well. The pool and surrounding area is fabulous. We spent so much time at the villa rather than exploring around the area because we loved it so much.

Thank you also to Luciano for his great hospitality.

Great location, stunning views fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The property is stunning and has been superbly modernised whilst keeping its original Sicilian charm. We were a large group travelling with young children and the grounds and swimming pool provided everything for our needs. It would equally make a peaceful retreat for just adults. The owner and caretakers are on hand for all enquiries. The view of Etna is stunning. thanks for a wonderful stay

Location

From the Owner

This property is a special place. It is unique. Why? Because of its history... Because its previous owners (all family ancestors) always loved it and considered it special... It has a unique Karma... a special energy... Though, I travel around the world, rarely have I seen such a special and unique location.
